This simple overhead-view racing game conceals a fascinating mix of cooperation and competition in two-player mode. You want to come in ahead of your opponent and collect enough spanners for a tune-up too, but it's vital that one of you beats the computer-controlled 'drone': otherwise it's game over for both of you. Do you leave the spanners for the other player if he needs a tune-up - extra speed, better handling etc - or play dog-in-the-manger and risk both of you losing on the next track? Interesting stuff: who'd have thought a racing game would turn into "them against us".
